HLC week 4 down

Monday, December 10, 2012

Week 4 is over and I'm glad for it. It was a hard week for me, the scale just wasn't my friend. I know in my heart the reasons why your weight goes up and down, trust me I get it. But can someone please tell my heart this because it's not listening to me in the least!!

However, the outcome at the end of the week? I got on the scale and loved the results, down to 30lbs lost. I must say it feels amazing to be able to say that!

Why is it when you are first losing weight you look ahead and think, '10 lbs would be great' then '20 lbs will never get here' and then '30 lbs, OMG' each time I think ahead I forget about my progress made to get me to 30 lbs. I guess it's because I haven't really noticed it, except for the new pants and I've gotten used to them. Also because I really don't 'know' what 30 lbs lost actually means. When I think about it I realize that's only 8 lbs shy of what my youngest daughter weighs. 30 lbs is the size of the sack of flour that I use for baking my bread. It's actually quite a bit, but then again so is 10 lbs, 20 lbs etc.

It's weight my frame no longer has to support and that can only equal out to a great thing! When you put your weight loss into an actual term you can see or understand it stops being a number and starts being a real thing. I can pick up a 5 lb dumbell and think, woah this is heavier, then wouldn't it mean that 5 lbs is quite a thing to lose off your body? When you pick up a 30lbs sack of flour and struggle to pick it up does it not become something amazing that you aren't carrying that around on your body???

Wow, 30 lbs lost.....haircut here I come!

    That is absolutely awesome! Congrats on that 30 lbs! You are doing great. And when the scale isn't being friendly, go look in the mirror and check out the room in you jeans.

    Wow! Way to Go! At the gym they have a mold of what 5 lbs of fat looks like, and its bigger than you'd imagine (since fat is much less dense than muscle). 30 lbs off is really quite a lot and a wonderful accomplishment. emoticon
